UPVC Door Security
High Security Door Cylinders
Lock bumping a UPVC door lock can take around 5 seconds for a burglar to gain entry to your property.
- A 10 year old child can open a UPVC door with a bump key
- Bump keys can be bought by anyone from a number of websites in the UK for as little as £2
- When lock bumping has occurred on your property there is no sign of forced entry or damage to the lock meaning insurance companies are wary in paying out
- Our UAP cylinders will protect you 100% against lock bumping. We guarantee this for life of the lock
- All our UAP cylinders we supply and fit come with 5 years parts & labour warranty
The truth is that the majority of security cylinders on the market today are not Anti-Snap so thieves will not even attempt to pick or bump the lock, they will move straight onto snapping the cylinder.
Lock snapping is a problem that most security door cylinders have failed to address. The principle is easy to enough to understand & apply pressure to the lock cylinder and it will snap.
The problem this leads to is that all of the other security measures that you thought were keeping you safe; the dead-bolts, anti-lift bars etc. are all rendered useless as lock snapping focuses only on the cylinder and exploiting its inherent weaknesses.

Hello there, I am an NHS and had such a drama last night having had my bag stolen on the journey home, no keys or purse it makes you want to just give up when things like this happen 🙁 I called these people and Mario got to me quite quickly and did the most amazing thing, he waved the labour charge of £49.00 as his partner was in hospital with COVID recently and had fully recovered but as a gesture of thanks to the NHS he waved his labour charge and I nearly cried, having just 2 locks to open and change he was on his merry way, thanks soooo much Mario and low cost, I hope you all have a great Xmas XX
Hi Selina - we will pass your thanks onto Mario and glad we could help you out with some discount last night - Happy Xmas to you too X
What a very successful job, after a few months of struggling to lock my front door I thought enough was enough I need to get new locks fitted. So after some research and reading reviews I decided to try this company and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Firstly the locksmith was such a gentleman and explained the process to me, he also offered me a fair price and now my locks work so smoothly! I would definitely recommend.
Hi Norah, thank you very much for this great review 🙂 We will pass on your feedback to our engineer.
Great local company. I rang early this morning and the guy on the phone was very helpful, he managed to book me in for that afternoon. The guy who came round to do the job was nice and got the job done quickly. Sarah
Hi Sarah, we're pleased that you are happy with the service received.
Went out to put the bins out and in that brief moment the door slammed shut leaving me locked out. Just my luck! I went around to my neighbours who had used lowcosting before and the engineer arrived to my address within half an hour. I can't thank you enough. Vedika
Hi Vedika, thank you for leaving us your review and we're glad that our reputation enabled you to use us.
We were burgled a few days ago, and on the advise of the police we were told to update our security. We called around for quotes and found that LowCost came up with the best quote, with help from Chris we arranged a time and true to there word were there on time. The work was carried out quickly and tidily. I would recommend to any friends.
Hi Sidney, we are glad that you would recommend us to your friends. Stay Safe. Tom.
Highly Secure Euro Cylinder
The high security Euro Cylinder is, as you would expect, Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill and Zero Lift. However, the feature which really sets this apart is the Anti-Snap feature. The Euro Cylinder will keep you safe from all of these methods of attack and replacing your cylinder is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to purchase peace of mind.
Ordinarily, companies develop locks and cylinders that can withstand lock bumping but there are not many that have thought about or looked at lock snapping. This is because creating an Anti-Snap cylinder is not an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, thieves and miscreants know this and so lock snapping is quickly becoming the number one way that they enter premises.
Recently there has been a wave of lock snapping attacks, so many so that it has caught the attention of the media. As a result of the coverage, many people are aware of this threat but are either unaware of what they can do about it, worried that the solution will cost a small fortune or are blissfully ignorant in the belief that their security lock will automatically be Anti-Snap.
Resist lock snapping and bumping
Your UPVC door is more than likely protected by nothing more than a £5 lock
The Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill, Zero Lift and Anti-Snap Euro Cylinder is specifically designed to keep you safe. The solution to the lock snapping problem seems simple but is the result of ingenious research and testing. Most lock cylinders snap in such a way that leaves the locking mechanism useless, causing the door to swing right open. An Anti-Snap cylinder is mostly snap resistant but if it were to snap at all, it would snap in a way that kept the locking mechanism, and your safety, intact.
Of course, all of the Euro Cylinders are six pin and each conform to EN1303:2005 British Standard Kitemark, easily one of the most recognised and revered safety hallmarks in the world.
